Sono indeciso tra queste conclusioni: - uno scrittore ormai anziano conosce una giovane e bella attrice e se ne innamora perdutamente scrivendole lettere d'amore e di passione proibita. - Henry Miller a 84 anni si rincoglionisce per una attricetta e scrive lettere francamente imbarazzanti per dichiararle il suo desiderio ardente. - Una delle tante aspiranti starlette in giro per la California capisce che puo' guadagnarci qualcosa e sta al gioco conservando tutte le lettere che un grandissimo scr ...more

What a fascinating look into one of literatures most notorious lotharios. It has everything you could expect from Miller. Overuse of the word 'cunt,' fantasies about different women holding his pecker, and he's a man in his mid to late 80s talking to a woman more than half his age.

But, it's also romantic. In the end the love Miller had for this woman. Brenda Venus, kept him alive past his expiration date. I agree with what I think is the point of this book, and probably Miller's overall career,
Henry Miller indirizzò queste lettere a Brenda Venus, scrivendo del suo amore come un uomo che si innamora per la prima volta.
Sono pagine in cui, pur essendo vecchio ed ammalato, Miller non manca di ottimismo, continua a mostrarsi l'uomo traboccante di vita che abbiamo conosciuto nelle altre opere.
Just a little ways into this book. I have read one of Henry Miller's books and liked it. I am not to sure about this book, which is love letter's to Brenda Venus. Not real great so far. Not recommended.

This is hard to classify. Why the hell is drooling over this chick, hes about to fucking die! the energy and intense emotion that he carried all the way to his ending years baffles me.

what a great insight into this amazing mans thoughts. granted he comes off as a horny old man--- but we don't have brenda's letters to see what she may have encourage him in ;)

Ick. I adore Henry Miller, as long as he is edited. This was awful, I hate seeing him as a pitiful old pervert exposed in personal letters. He was a nutty old bastard.

Henry Miller sought to reestablish the freedom to live without the conventional restraints of civilization. His books are potpourris of sexual description, quasi-philosophical speculation, reflection on literature and society, surrealistic imaginings, and autobiographical incident.

After living in Paris in the 1930s, he returned to the United States and settled in Big Sur, Calif. Miller's first tw
